My guess would be the strut spring is broken. Also check the strut bearing plate and the lower ball joint.

check all the front end moving parts for looseness, ball joints, tie rods, upper and lower arm bushings, wheel bearings, brake mounting supports, swaybar bushings, if it makes noise and shifts it its dangerous to drive

Whining noise is probably in one of the pulleys or belts. Probably the power steering. And the popping is probably CV axles.

When turning hard right or left a noise occurs not sure if it is awheel bearing or 4-wheel drive u-joint


Raise wehicle and use long handle prybar and try to lift the wheel straight up. If it is play then you have bad bearings. Please Note that wheel bearings will make grinding noise igf they are bad on any speed above 25Mph no matter that you turning your steering whel or not. Grinding noise from turning your steerin wheel it is comming from sterring pump. Check your fluid.

Ford focus power steering problem


Hi, it does sound like your on the right track as the noise gets louder when you turn the wheel. without turning the wheel you should have a slight noise that will get louder when you turn the wheel this would then point me to believ the power steering pump needs replacing.

As your not loosing any fluid then the rest of the steering should be ok so changing the pump will solve your problem, just remember to make sure you bleed the pump properly and the steering properly after fitting the new one as not doing this properly could cause damage to seals inside the rack itself causing more problems than you need so double check you have bled all the air out ok.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

Popping noise on s80 volvo 2.9 1999


Sounds like a ball joint or bad strut. Depends on how the noise occurs and from where it comes from. Does it appear to come from one wheel or another? Could also be power steering linkage.
